6’4 ’21 Christian Cornish
Long and athletic, Cornish knows how to impose his will on both ends of the floor pretty regularly. He utilizes his high motor to attack the rim on offense and make plays on defense. Cornish has upside as a creator and looked fairly competent when creating off the dribble, able to touch the paint and make the correct pass whenever possible. He displayed an excellent feel for the game and was his team’s most reliable two-way player from start to finish. Cornish is definitely going to be a prospect worth monitoring, given his physicality and upside.
6’4 ’20 Zachary Bessette
Bessette is a smooth, well-rounded guard that knows how to play within the team concept and thrive in his role. He scores fairly often and can apply pressure from all three levels. He handles the ball effectively and can create nicely off the bounce, both for himself and others. Bessette is a reliable presence that sees the floor well and makes the right pass at the right time.
6’10 ’21 Gabe Wiznitzer
The big man prospect was basically dominant throughout this game, able to really control the interior throughout this game, especially on offense. He showed great touch and quality post moves on the block, but also possesses the ability to stretch the floor nicely for his size and age. Wiznitzer utilizes his size well to clear out space around the basket for rebounds and finishes. He’s an extremely interesting recruit that certainly belongs at the Division I level.
6’7 ’22 DeAnte Green
There weren’t many players more intriguing than Green, who showcased a lot of two-way versatility and upside. He was able to effectively rebound the ball and push ahead in transition, making the appropriate pass and running the floor with purpose. His offensive skillset is growing by the day, but he finished well around the basket and could develop into a three-level scorer over time.
6’5 ’19 Josh Nickelberry
There a lot of talented scoring guards in the country, but Nickelberry can go bucket-to-bucket with anyone. He creates space as well as any guard and possesses incredible confidence when hunting his shot. Nickelberry is a capable three-level scorer, but truly thrives when attacking the basket and utilizing his athleticism to finish at or above the rim. He has an impressive feel for the game and could become a quality playmaker, given his vision and ability to draw defenders.
6’7 ’20 Ethan Young
There’s a lot to like with Young, who is still harnessing his two-way abilities, but plays really hard and rim-runs quite well. He’s a calm presence on both ends of the floor and operates nicely within his role, screening hard, rolling to the basket, and finishing through contact. Young doesn’t force the action and should be able to continue developing on offense.
6’3 ’20 Kalib Matthews
The prowess and nonstop attacking nature of Matthews was very effective during this game, applying constant pressure as a penetrator and showing the ability to play above the rim. He’s long, wiry, and athletic with a quality skillset, making him extremely intriguing as a prospect. Matthews has college-level ability and should see an uptick in his recruitment during the upcoming season.
6’1 ’21 Javonte Waverly
The young guard prospect was among the most reliable scorers for Henderson Collegiate, getting downhill and attacking the rim at will. He showed nice feel inside the arc and was able to consistently generate scoring chances off the bounce. Waverly sees the floor well and made numerous plays on defense with his quickness.
6’1 ’21 Troy Fulton
With a decent amount of roster turnover, guys like Fulton are going to need to have a strong, steady impact on both ends of the floor. He showed the ability to spot-up and knock down shots throughout this contest. Fulton displayed a nice motor and was able to rebound the ball pretty well for his size. If he can continue to hit shots and make the extra pass, Fulton should have a productive season for Lincoln Charter.
6’0 ’19 Tron Robinson
Robinson was the most energetic player on either end of the floor during this contest, purposefully initiating offensive sets while intensely defending the point of attack. He does a nice job of operating within the team concept and not forcing the action. Robinson gets to the rim regularly and showcased quality playmaking skills upon entering the paint.
6’3 ’19 Zeke Littlejohn (Maryland Eastern Shore commit)
The leader for Kings Mountain is certainly Littlejohn, who assumes a lot of scoring responsibility and applies pressure from all three levels. He displayed a strong amount of athleticism in this contest, playing above the rim numerous times, but also maintained his smooth perimeter approach. Littlejohn offers a nice blend of scoring, ball-handling, and understanding of his skillset. He should be able to find quality minutes next season as a freshman at Maryland Eastern Shore.
6’4 ’19 Tyler Dearman
This Southern Guilford squad has looked pretty strong throughout the day, largely thanks to Dearman and his ability to dominate on offense. He’s a reliable ball-handler and creator, both for himself and others, and scores efficiently on all three levels. Albeit an unorthodox release, Dearman is capable of heating up quickly from beyond the arc and truly understands how to apply constant scoring pressure. He has a great feel for the game and doesn’t look to be overly flashy on the court, simply preferring to get the job done.
6’4 ’19 Julius Burch
The X-Factor for this team is Burch, who can do a little bit of everything on both ends of the floor. He possesses a long, wiry frame and understands how to properly utilize it to overwhelm all types of opponents. Burch rebounds well and seamlessly switches across three positions at this level. He has a lot of translatable skills and plays with an excellent motor at all times. Burch has a decent jumper, but he’s much more difficult for opponents to contain when he’s attacking and finishing at the rim.
5’10 ’19 Marcus Harris
Harris enjoyed a nice performance during his third showing of the day and made a nice impact on both sides of the ball. He defended with purpose and intensity from start to finish. Harris looked nice when attacking the basket and showed an extra gear in transition, able to beat everyone down the floor with relative ease.
